Synopsis

He’s up to something. I know it. No man can be that handsome and mysterious. He’s probably a spy. I can’t say for sure, but I’m going to find out. Watching Heath is easy, but wanting him is the part that’s going to get me into trouble.

Lena peeks from her windows and tries to catch me doing something, though I’m not sure what she thinks she’ll see. What sort of an assassin would I be if my sweet neighbor figured me out so easily? Besides, I’m here to watch over her. The only problem is that she’s irresistible and far more alluring than my work. Choosing between them may be the death of me, but Lena is more than worth it.

My thoughts 💭

This was an okay read. Lena is spying on Heath. He is aware since she’s not very good at it and he likes to spy on her as well. He thinks she’s adorable and she thinks he’s hot but up to no good but she can’t prove it. When he chooses Lena over his job all heck breaks loose and his secrets come out and they run together to start their new life.

Synopsis

This is a slow burn holiday romance about two broken people with one goal—to survive.

Yoshiro escaped a career of crime with the mafia, after they killed his family. For five years, he’s dropped out of life. All he wants this Christmas is to be left alone. Then, Ebony and her kids accidentally crash onto his property during a snowstorm. For three years, they’ve been running from her husband—who’s been more monster than man.

The storm picks up. They are forced to remain with Yoshiro until it dies down. And the threat of Ebony’s monster remains, lurking within the shadows and threatening her safety. But Yoshiro knows all about death and blood. Her monster doesn’t scare him. What has him terrified is that heartwarming feeling sparking between them. The more time Yoshiro spends with Ebony, the more she becomes a Christmas present that he’s dying to open. Too bad, she’s promised herself that she will never let another man in her or her children’s life again.

Yet, sometimes the best Christmas presents come from a bullet. Every so often a good Christmas miracle is a cut-up body to end a nightmare. And even better, at just the right moment two lonely people can find light in their darkened souls and open their hearts to a new romance.

REDEMPTION is a standalone AmBw romance with an HEA and no cliffhangers. This book also contains violence, strong language, naughty illustrations, and graphic sexual scenes.

My thoughts 💭

I loved Ebony and YoYo! Ebony is running from her husband and YoYo just wants to keep her and her family safe and with him so they can be a family. I enjoyed the slow burn! You knew they wanted each other and when it finally happened it was exactly what was needed with all the tension. They both had been hurt before but healed each other and it was enjoyable to read.

Cover Reveal: The Black Fox by Brianna Hale

Title: The Black Fox
Collection: The Dirty Heroes Collection
Author: Brianna Hale
Genre: Dark Romance Novella
Release Date:
Cover Design: Jay Aheer – Simply Defined Art

For fifteen years I was the Black Fox, the hero of Spain, the good-luck devil. I made my enemies dance to my tune and fall to my sword. 

The day must come when every hero hangs up his cape, and for me, it was the day I outsmarted the curse. I would not die for love, because I didn’t love the woman I married. Valeria Hernandez didn’t love me. 
Then I met her. Lolita. Fresh from boarding school, as beautiful as a rose’s thorn and poised to pierce my heart. Little Lo is as dangerous as sin and twice as forbidden. She hates me, but she loves her Black Fox. Her savior. Her devil in black. 
How he loves to hear her call him daddy. 
Author’s note: The Black Fox is a novella of 25,000 words. This book contains cheating.

Lolita backs up toward the door, her terrified eyes never leaving my face. I put out my hand and shove the door closed, crowding her against it. “Who were you with?”
Lolita swallows and stares up at me with huge eyes. She can sense it, too, this power crackling through me. It’s like a hit of adrenaline and a shot of whisky, making me invincible.
“No one.”
I slam my fist against the door, and she jumps. “Don’t lie to me.” The scent from her body is all warm summer night and fragrant flowers. I’d know, wouldn’t I, if she’s had some man pressed against her? I grasp her chin and turn her head in the light, examining her lips and throat. Her mouth isn’t swollen with kisses. There are no red bite-marks on her creamy neck. The tight band around my heart eases a little.
She yanks her chin from my hand and glares at me. “Get your hands off me.”
“In this house, you will obey my rules,” I seethe.
“Go to hell.”
So that’s how it’s going to be. That’s how she thinks it will be, anyway. I’m glad she’s misbehaved on her very first night. We can get things straight from the beginning. “Say you’re sorry for breaking the rules.”
Lolita forces a laugh. There’s defiance in her eyes, but fear, too. She isn’t sure how far I’m willing to take this.
All the way.
I reach down and slowly unbuckle my belt, the black leather sliding through the silver buckle. “Last chance, Lolita. Say, I’m sorry, daddy.”
Her voice is a horrified whisper. “You wouldn’t dare.”
There’s nothing I wouldn’t dare do right now. There’s a voice whispering in the back of my mind, showing me the way forward. I loop the belt around her neck and draw her to me. “Tell daddy you’re sorry, and I’ll let you off just this once.”
Her eyes flicker with panic, but she doesn’t say anything. I tighten the belt around her throat until she struggles to breathe. “I’ve got all night. You’ve got about a minute till you pass out.”
“I’m sorry,” she finally chokes out.
“I’m sorry, daddy.”
Her face creases with revulsion. I smile a slow, smoldering smile, anticipating how sweet it will sound from her pretty pink mouth.
“I’m sorry, daddy.”
Her lips are so close to mine that I could drop a kiss onto them. Her breasts are pressed against my chest. I can smell her innocence, just begging to be consumed.
A delicacy like Lolita is meant to be savored. Slowly, I loosen my hold on the belt, slide it free from her neck and step back. “Daddy forgives you, babygirl.”
Lolita takes great, heaving breaths. ‘I’ll tell Mamá what you just did. What you made me call you, you pervert.’
I chuckle, threading my belt back through my pants. “Go ahead. It’s not as if she’ll believe you, you filthy little liar.”
Lolita bursts into tears, yanks the door open, and runs from the room. I watch her disappear down the hall, still grinning.
Then the smile dies on my face.
I stagger and clutch the door frame as horror crashes over me. What the fuck was I just doing to my stepdaughter? The righteous anger that sustained me all evening and told me that terrorizing Lolita was the right thing to do has evaporated, and I’m left cold and empty. I hear a faint peal of malicious laughter, and whip around.
‘Who’s there?’
The castel is still around me. The chirping cicadas cut through the night air. I look down at my hands, the ones that so recently held my belt tight around Lolita’s throat, and see that they’re shaking.
Who am I? What am I becoming? I don’t recognize myself from the man I was this morning. The man I was before I met Lolita.
There’s nothing Brianna Hale likes more than a large, stern alpha male with a super-protective and caring streak, and when she’s not writing about them she can usually be found with a book, a cocktail, planning her next trip to a beautiful location or attending the theatre. She believes that pink and empowerment aren’t mutually exclusive, and everyday adventures are possible. Brianna lives in London.

Genre: Thriller, Suspense

Add on Goodreads


Laura Foley hooks up with the handsome author Cohan Laity while on holiday in Spain. For Laura, a holiday fling is just what she needs – but that’s all she needs, refusing to see him again once the holiday comes to an end.
But a besotted Cohan won’t take no for an answer. He follows her back to the UK and infiltrates every aspect of her life to get to her, threatening everything she loves and holds dear.
She tries reasoning. She tries hiding. She even tries involving the police as Cohan stalks her every move and worms his way into her family by dating her sister.
Laura is terrified but won’t capitulate. She must take matters into her own hands, and he may well have underestimated her as the hunter becomes the hunted.






As a working nurse, Joy Wood has been creating stories in her head for years, but never found the time to do anything with them – life just got in the way somehow.
Five years ago, she was made redundant and moved to the picturesque seaside town of Cleethorpes in Lincolnshire. She loves nothing better than walking along the seafront and thinking up ideas for stories. Her debut novel ‘For the Love of Emily’ was written by Joy “just to see if she could really,” – she had no idea it would sell like it did and continues to do so. Joy is quick to point out it is most definitely one for adults only! At various book signings, readers recognized Joy from articles in local papers and suggested they’d like a hospital romance, so she concentrated on ‘Knight & Dey’ a hospital romance with a difference. Someone dies on the first page, but Joy hasn’t given away the gender of the victim, nor the gender of the assailant. The idea is for the reader to engage with each character in the book, trying to decide which one dies, and who did it.
Next came ‘Chanjori House’ – a love story set in Scotland. Eve was in love with Rick but he went away. Eleven years later he’s back, but she’s married to his father. Sparks fly . . . revenge is a dish best served cold.
‘April Fool’ is Joy’s 4th novel and she is hoping readers will love it. April Master is an undercover police officer trying to raise enough money to send her son for surgery in the USA. Her remit is to expose the dynamic and charismatic gallery owner who is behind the heists of expensive oil paintings. She embarks on an affair with him – just to bring him to justice she tells herself. But is he too clever for her . . . or is she too clever for him?  
Who’s Smiling Now? is Joy’s 5th Novel and she can’t wait to hear what readers think of it!

From USA Today Bestselling Author K Webster, comes a dark, paranormal prison romance reverse harem standalone novel!

I’ve been wrongfully accused.
Sure, everyone sent to prison says that.
It’s true, though.
I’m not who they say I am.
Dark. Evil. An abomination. The worst of the worst.

They sent me to the deepest, most awful catacombs of Nightmare Penitentiary. It’s where they put all their secrets they don’t want anyone in the world—both human and paranormal—to know about. I’m left to be forgotten and waste away until the day I die.

And I’m not alone.

I’m there with others. Others who are worse than me.
Terrifying. Horrible. Monsters.
Four demons in particular who seem to wake from their evil slumber the moment I enter their presence.

They want me.
All four of them.

I’m not sure what they plan on doing once they get their hands on me.
But one thing’s for sure…

It won’t be good.

My thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I enjoyed this book! I adored Charis! She was thrown into unfortunate circumstances with no explanation but didn’t let that stop her from forming a harem. Rapa, Vole, Crim and Ulen were crazy about their woman and I loved it! This was a well written book and I definitely recommend!

ABOUT L. MOONE

Realistic characters, pure emotions, true passion. Everything I write is about the characters: how they interact, what’s going on in their heads, how the passionate relationship develops and affects them. I don’t believe in keeping things hidden, or dressing them up just for show. Some of my characters are potty-mouths, most of them are less than perfect (yes, even physically). I aim to write a happy ending for all of them, without keeping anything behind closed doors.
